I freaking talk about Dewey/Truman at least daily. At least.

I saw something really interesting with the election results. Has everyone seen the colored U.S. map where it shows which candidate won which state? Like, in terms of size, Bush won most of the country, and won the most states. It’s just, there are small pockets of areas Gore won and that was enough to give him the popular vote. But it’s really striking how it looks.

The more interesting thing to me was seeing a California state map, showing which candidate won each county. It looked exactly the same. There are huge regions colored for Bush, and then these population pockets where Gore won. It was interesting for me because Gore won California handily. I just assumed he won pretty much the whole state. But the trends in California look exactly like the national trends. Interesting.
